ClickToPhone is a comprehensive user interface that simplifies and integrates the functions of a smartphone together with environmental control seamlessly into one package. It is primarily designed to enable people with disabilities to FULLY control their Android smart-phone or tablet. With a single switch, or joystick, a user can make calls, send and receive texts, view pictures, play music, access the internet and much more.

ClickToPhone is also suitable for Seniors and other touchscreen users who require a simplified smartphone GUI that replaces the phone's native launcher.

The App forms part of a combined hardware/app solution. The hardware, called HouseMate, is controlled using a built-in switch or by connecting an external switch or joystick. It can also be interfaced to R-Net, DX and Curtis wheelchair control systems. It is powered by a rechargeable Li-Ion battery and contains a powerful omni-directional InfraRed transmitter and a Bluetooth radio module.

The hardware communicates the switch presses to the app on the smart-phone. The app uses intuitive scanning techniques and a rich graphical interface to present different options to the user. If the user chooses an environmental control option then ClickToPhone will transmit the corresponding InfraRed, EasyWave or Z-Wave signal.

HouseMate can also be fitted with a radio frequency Nurse call pager. This alarm can be activated at anytime by pressing the switch for a defined period of time.

After installation the wizard will guide you through the setup procedure. You will be asked to choose one of four different user levels, the contents of the home page, the scanning method and other commonly used options. The final step of the wizard guides you through pairing your phone with your hardware and making the first connection.

You can use ClickToPhone freely without any hardware with certain restrictions. You can test the scanning using your headset button by setting the scanning method to “Headset Switch”.

Hardware features:
• Control of any device that can be operated by InfraRed signals including light switches, power sockets, bed controls and door openers.

    Wish it had a option to restart the phone and more control over the camera but I love it on my Samsung Galaxy Note 4!

    Very impressive!  I have been using ClickToPhone to control my Samsung Galaxy S3 for the past six months.  It is important for me to have full access to all device features via my single switch and ClickToPhone has proven capable of doing just that.  The crosshairs feature is excellent for efficiently tapping touchscreen targets, and the swipe feature actually gives me the feel of using my hand.

    As a C3 quadriplegic of 17 years this app is simply the best thing since sliced bread is give me 100% access to my Samsung S3 and Note 10.1 (with built-in mobile). We were particularly impressed by Brian the developer who took note of all of our comments and even managed to implement some changes to suit our particular needs. It's quite simply the only solution available for 100% access to a mod
